"I was very happy with the whole experience. Allowing 2 weeks to cover everything is the ideal amount of time needed to learn and pass the exams. Also the two instructors were excellent. I also think the course was good value but would have preferred if it was held earlier so at least you would be guaranteed better weather. Overall I would definitely recommend it to others".
14-Day Sailing School Croatia Is Open for a Limited Time
This is one of our most unique and in-demand programs for guests who want to learn how to sail and operate a bareboat. Our exclusive sailing courses in Croatia allow you to earn an IYT Bareboat Skipper Certificate.
The IYT Bareboat Skipper Certificate allows you to legally command a vessel up to a maximum length of 78 ft (24 meters), in coastal waters up to 20 miles offshore; this applies to daylight hours and in fair conditions, with moderate wind and sea conditions.
This certificate is the level of competence required to charter a boat in the Mediterranean or West Indies, where there are restrictions for cruising area and distance from base, in addition to the requirement that the vessel has to be safely moored in a marina or anchored before dark.
